Mad Mexican on Jane. Open Yet?
Jose Hadad appears to be about to open a restaurant on Jane, a couple of blocks north of Bloor. The last time I looked a couple of weeks ago, they had hiring signs in the window.
Jose is behind the food at Frida, the high end Mexican place on Eglinton, as well as the selection of fresh salsas and chips sold under the Mad Mexican brand at SLM and various smaller fine food places. Rumour has it that this will be somewhat more casual in terms of service and pricing than Frida. Could be very cool.....
If it's going to be a mixed use restaurant/retail, that would excite me very much. That trip to Eglinton & Allen has been the only barrier. Love Hadad's stuff. There's a lot of care in every morsel.
Snarf, the new (insert expletive here)'s that now run Instant Caterer at SLM have decided in their widsom to discontinue carrying Mad Mexican products. That's okay. I get it elsewhere and no longer need to enter Instant Caterer. They can have my biz back if they bring MM back.
Loving the emerging trend of midtown restos moving downtown. C'mon on down!
